"...we should pass over all biographies of 'the good and the great,' while we search carefully the slight records of wretches who died in prison, in Bedlam, or upon the gallows."

Weekend Link Dump

Cats:  Don't leave home without them!

On to the links:

Where the hell is Catherine Walsh?

What the hell is this Japanese tomb?

What the hell is flying over Long Island?

What the hell is this banana flying over Wales?

What the hell is the Upsweep?

What the hell are these jade discs?

Who the hell was Kennewick Man?

Watch out for the Glastonbury Glawackus!

Watch out for the Kentucky Goblins!

Watch out for those atmospheric beasts!

Watch out for those sea serpents!

The Pennines is really sinking!

The Pacific is really glowing!

Ancient France is really feuding!

The ancient Roman who was the first known UFO investigator.

Uncovering a Siberian war hero.

Yet another article where the idiot of a writer expresses surprise at the concept that animals think.

A tribute to some of history's unjustly forgotten horses.

A story that's both sad and inspiring:  The woman who's turned her home into a cat hospice.

If a dog is man's best friend, a crocodile's best friend is a cat.  Or something like that.

You want to talk climate change?  This is climate change.

Cactus Cats! Splinter Cats!  Sliver Cats!

That time a Jewish Confederate was saved by a talking parrot.

Some tales of Mystery Music.

The kind of mistake that could happen to anyone.

Sorry, gang, JFK and Marilyn did not engage in pillow-talk about extraterrestrials.  That we know of, at least.

Standards of feminine beauty through the ages.

In which space cadets argue about rat utopias.

Decoding Newton.

The last of the hermits.

Ah, the English countryside.  Sleepy villages, romantic moors, peaceful woods, bloodthirsty cannibals...wait, what?

Tea at Fortnum & Mason's.  Prepare to have your credit card shriek in agony.

Richard Norris, the two-faced man.

Stupid Nazi Tricks.

Science and magic are more compatible than you might think.

Lawyers, Guns, and Dummy.

The history of the New York Lambs, featuring their cat and goat mascots.

That wraps it up for this edition of the Link Dump.  I'll see you on Monday, when I'll be looking at the time demons visited 17th century Massachusetts.  In the meantime, have a great weekend, gang.  Here's Lowell George to get you out of trouble.
